Iris
and Barry have deep historical past on ‘The Flash’

In
the primary episode of The Flash, Barry supposed to inform Iris he had
emotions for her. But earlier than he might make the leap, the S.T.A.R. Labs particle
accelerator exploded, and Barry was knocked right into a coma by lightning. When he woke
up, Iris was romantically concerned with a police detective named Eddie Thawne,
so Barry moved on and commenced courting as nicely.

After
a couple of missed connections, devastating losses, and deep heartbreaks, Barry and
Iris realized they have been meant for one another and finally tied the knot. Unfortunately,
with lethal threats frequently arising, the couple might by no means appear to catch a
break.

Some low factors the couple confronted have been: Flashpoint brought on unfavorable ripple results, Barry grew to become trapped within the Speed Force, the couple’s future daughter perished earlier than their eyes, and Crisis worn out the multiverse.

Now,
within the again half of The Flash Season 6, the West-Allen couple appears to
be extra disconnected than ever earlier than. The characters have spent minimal time
collectively, particularly since Iris has been trapped within the Mirrorverse for a number of
weeks. With Barry and Iris spending extra time aside, the shortage
of shared display time between the actors has followers speculating about their
skilled relationship.

Twitter
followers surprise if Candice Patton and Grant Gustin are combating

Viewers are tweeting about why they suppose Patton and Gustin spend so little time collectively on display though they play a married couple on The Flash. Fans are questioning if the actors who play Barry and Iris are getting alongside.

One fan tweeted, “Seriously, are @candicepatton and #GrantGustin fighting? Iris and Barry have spent nearly the whole season apart. Iris has spent more time in that damn mirror than Barry spent in #Flashpoint and in the Speed Force…episode-wise that is. #The Flash”

Another fan agreed by commenting, “Omg I thought so too. The tension on screen..”

And one more person questioned the on-camera chemistry of the actors by noting, “they don’t even kiss though. Not most of the time. I’m not looking for makeout sessions, but not even a peck in moments where they should. Just ‘hugging’ like buddies. I miss #WestAllen acting like a couple!”

Patton units the
document straight

Patton addressed the query about her working relationship with
Gustin on Twitter. She squashed any hypothesis that she and her scene associate
are combating.

“LoL. Absolutely not,” Patton tweeted.  

The actress’s reply leaves no room for conjecture. And contemplating
Gustin’s statements through the years, the celebs appear to have mutual respect.

In one Instagram post defending Patton towards Internet trolls, Gustin says, “She is Black. She is beautiful. And She is our Iris.” He goes on to say this about Iris, “She is Barry’s end game, and Candice Patton plays her.” With these phrases in thoughts, it appears like followers can count on extra West-Allen display time sooner or later.
